Goalkeeping coach Brian Jensen has left Bury to move to fellow League One club Shrewsbury Town.

The Copenhagen-born shot-stopper, also a former Shakers player, joined the club last summer and was part of Ryan Lowe’s promotion-winning backroom staff.

Lowe and assistant Steven Schumacher have moved to Plymouth with Jensen the latest to leave the crisis club.

“Brian had a very successful playing career and was still playing until a couple of seasons ago”, said Shrewsbury boss Sam Ricketts.

“He moved over to the coaching side and last year was his first year full on coaching at Bury and that resulted in a promotion for them.

“It was a very successful first year for him and I’m delighted to have him.

“His career and the way he played and handled himself you can see in the way that he coaches and we will then see that in the goalkeepers.

“A player whose game management was very good and he has a real eye for detail in the art of goalkeeping.

“He’s started his coaching career successfully and you like to have promotions during your playing and coaching career and Brian has managed that.”

Jensen who spent 10 years with Burnley as a player including time in the Premier League, linked up with the Shrews for the first time on Thursday.

The 44-year-old recently opened up to the Bury Times about the problems behind the scenes at Gigg Lane as the Shakers returned to League One.

““I’ve never come across anything like it,” he said.

“The emotions, the stuff that’s been going on, it really messes with your head.

"It’s really tough to go into work. You try to do it for yourself, you try to do it for the club and we know that a promotion, especially with all the troubles we had, will look good on our own CV. 

“But it was literally to give the club a better chance of survival. 

“We really tried to start something and unfortunately we can’t continue doing it for obvious reasons. 

“It’s sad, it’s really, really sad. 

“I could sit here now and start hammering associations and all kinds of people and individuals. 

“I’m not going to do that. People aren’t stupid, they know what’s going on.”
